F.Y.I #2 ~ Wonky cake :)

Hi friends and happy weekend!

As you may remember from this post, I have a new segment this year called Find Your Inspiration! (F.Y.I.) 

  This is actually post #4, but after I looked for the others, I realized I never launched them!
So I'm rearranging a few blog posts and now #4 is #2 - LOL!  

I'm in a fun group on Splitcoaststampers called the Creative Card Chicks.
This month, our hostess Barb, sent us a super cute card kit
including this wonky cake image from Whipper Snapper stamps.

Which I was SUPER giddy to see because when I went to visit 
the crafty gals at camp, we stopped by Creative Pals which is a store
that's wall to wall whipper snapper (and more) stamps!
What a fun store!!

But more than just the fun store and great card kit,
the minute I saw the image, I was immediately brought back to 
my oldest daughter's Sweet 16 ♥
She's now 23 and engaged to be married and So. Grown. Up!
When we were planning her party,
she told me of a cake she designed and it was bright and neon
and 'sort of wonky.'
When we explained her vision to the cake maker, 
she smiled and said "not a problem, I can do wonky!"
And she did!
Her cake was a vision and EXACTLY what she drew up and described!

See! ↓

I actually couldn't find the photo in my seperate hard-drive photo
and colored the image on my card from memory!
 Once we hooked that up to find these 7 year old photos,
I was so excited that I ALMOST got it right :)

Here's my card, which is a two-fer:

Thanks, Barb, for your wonderful kit and the walk down memory lane :)

Have a great weekend, friends!
I hope something inspires you today ♥

Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥


  1. Oh, I love it and how it almost exactly matches the original cake. Such fun and great coloring.

  2. Reading your post made me smile :) The cake maker made a perfect work for your daughter and it was very colorful (and wonky LOL)!
    Lovely card on that memory, so bright and fun!

  3. I love the card and reading some of the memories from two weeks ago. I love the card--and I love the picture of the cake too--and your DD. Stunning!

  4. OH Kelly... your card is AWESOME! I love the overall design and the fun coloring. It is absolutely perfect in every way! BUT... I just say, the photo of your DD and the cake she designed has stolen the show on this blog post. ;)

  5. What a fabulous card!! The cakes are awesome...both the one on your card and your beautiful daughters' cake!! You matched it perfectly!! Love this!! Have a great weekend!! Big hugs :)

  6. Aaaww what a cute story! Your memory really did serve you well! How fun and I'm not surprised it made you think about your daughter's cake! Fabulous job!

  7. This similarity is great, Kelly ! Great memory and wonderful card.


  8. Wow, your memory is still excellent...you colored almost exactly the real wonky cake...such a stunning one! Must have been a lot of (fun) work.
